There isn't a shortage of Tron-inspired watch faces for Android Wear with bright neon blue colors, but finding one that is customizable to different styles and watch shapes can be a bit difficult. Enter NAVI, from Tha PHLASH (lots of capslocking there), a cool watch design that hits all the right notes.
Available for both round and square watches, with a setting that lets you remove the redundant digits on the G Watch R (finally someone thought of that!), NAVI comes in both a day and a night mode.
Discovering apps on the Play Store is a daunting task. Unless you are passionate about Android and spend hours going down the rabbit hole of Search / Similar / More from developer, or religiously reading sites like Android Police, you will miss out on a lot of great releases. That's the problem Appeer wants to solve.
Appeer takes a MagicRecs-like approach to app recommendation. The idea boils down to this: Appeer monitors your friends' devices for the apps they install and if 3 or more of them have a new app, it gets recommended to you.
Since time immemorial, Yelp's Android app has been incredibly ugly. That ends today. The redesign that reached beta testing last month has been released to the general public. It's so much nicer than the old one.
When Google updated Calendar to version 5.1 last week, it introduced a bug that hit users with an "unable to launch event" message whenever they tried to launch an APK downloaded using Chrome or the stock Android browser. Now the company has pushed out a hotfix update intended to do away with the problem.
This bug prevented some users from launching the apps they downloaded in our APK download posts, but we were able to get around this issue by rolling out a server tweak for APK Mirror.
Over the summer, we banged our heads against our computer screens just to feel closer to the sweet upcoming beauty known formally as Material Design. Then 5.0 arrived and over-the-air updates starting rolling out. Now many of us have had months for the newness to wear off.
But some of us just can't get enough. We want material all the things, not just apps. It's an insatiable desire that not even Google, with its inconsistent app designs, is able to fill.
Google has released a new app by the name of Creative Preview, and despite the captivating name, most of us won't find the software particularly exciting.
You see, Creative Preview serves a singular purpose. It allows users to preview ads using the Google Mobile Ads SDK without having to traffic a real one. You can push creatives, as these ads are called, from DoubleClick Studio to your Android device and preview them on the smaller screen.
Twitter looks to be in the process of rolling out a handy feature in its official app, but you probably don't have it yet. A number of users in the Twitter beta program report they now have a built-in browser for viewing links. This appears to be a server-side change, so you can't just install an APK to enable it.
This Update Wednesday brings about a change to the Google Drive Android app that's all about moving files around. Let's get to it.
Google intends for Drive to serve as your file manager in the cloud, but for ages now the Android app has limited us to moving files around through drop-down menus. Now it supports basic drag and drop.
You should get a pop-up explaining the new feature after making the jump to 2.2, but in case you don't, here's how it works.
There's a new Google app in the Play Store today—the Google PDF Viewer. You may be wondering why that exists seeing as Google Drive already opens PDFs. It's that same basic thing, but you don't need Drive. This app is intended mainly for Android for Work, but anyone can install it.
